In the beginning, sin corrupted humankind, resulting in death and decreased earthly lifespans. In the end, death will be no more, and we will experience eternal, abundant life in God’s presence.

    I have been reading The Book Of Enoch that was taken out of the Bible. I definitely recommend it to everyone. It’s the exact opposite of boring, from the very start.

    Hope everyone’s having a beautifully blessed Friday

    The story of Enoch always stands out to me that whilst God was decreasing the lifespans of His relatives – Enoch walked so faithfully with the Lord that when it was His time, he did not die but went to be with the Lord for eternity – Jesus’ death allows us to follow Enoch’s footsteps and if we can be faithful too, we too can have eternal life!

    I believe, Help my unbelief
    Mark 9:24
    It’s so hard for me to wrap
    My mind around someone living that long. I always come back to this verse and remind myself that THIS is the truth ❤️. I pray to God to help my unbelief’s when I have these doubts

    Reading how long people lived….hundreds of years, and all that time they had to sacrifice yearly for their sins makes me thankful first, that we no longer have to sacrifice because of what Christ did on the cross. And second I’m thankful I don’t have to live that long waiting to see God! Even if I live to be 100 it will be nothing compared to what people used to have to endure with their primitive ways. Also just think, we are living in the last days so it could be any day now!

    What stood out for me today is this verse in Revelation 12:11 where it tells us that triumph is by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of our testimony.
    I am so glad to know that victory comes through Jesus and is not dependent on only my own strength. However, we have to do our part, we have to give testimony. Thank you God for giving us new life in Jesus, thank you for allowing us to be part of Your kingdom work. Help us to be good witnesses. Amen

    There is an interesting opposite sides visual of Genesis and Revelation. Genesis starts with the building of creation and how sin enters in. Revelation takes it and restores. Without scripture readings in both books, I never really thought about their connection.
